    Business meeting, they should open up the back room and spread folks out so we can talk business. Sitting in the bar area is too congested and close together.

    It was pleasant and nice. Waiter was attentive and had good energy. I like the “ vibe” but it is noisy and a bit hectic. The food was good not great and mid range in price. Nice neighborhood place to dine.

    Very very loud. There was a party that was separated from the dining room a curtain. At several points the people pushed into us at our table. At one point they had the nerve to ask us to be quite bc they were doing a speech Meanwhile they were very loud and we could hardly talk. Not worth close to $400 pizza dinner.

    We used to frequent Marcello’s often but haven’t been for a few years since moving out of the area. Our visit last night (date night!) was adequate but the charm and value that were the cornerstone of a Marcello’s experience are gone, and the owner/manager lacked the warmth of the previous staff. Ambiance is still pretty with the lights, fireplace and greenery but the music was too loud and perhaps a bit early 90s clubby, which felt out of place. Notably, our drinks were spectacular (they make one heck of an old fashioned 🥃) and our server (Candice?) was perfect. My husbands Chicken Calabrese special was decent, but my Marsala was bland (and salads are now a la carte). Limoncello dessert is a very good choice, so don’t miss (and the pizzas still looked excellent). Is it worth a visit? Sure. Is it better than other establishments on the block? For us, not anymore.

    I have been to Marcellos before and love that options on the me j change. Wonderful food. The Mimosa Lobster Ravioli has amazing. You could taste every ingredient! Service was fine but nothing above average. The restaurant was packed on both sides. A bit loud overall due to all hard surfaces. Probably no need to have music in background as well as it was hard to have in intimate conversation at our table. Other than the noise, I will be back and deter to friends due to the food and exceptional cocktail menu!

    I thought the food was mediocre Italian fare. I ordered the penne diavolo Frutti De Mare and I was impressed with the quantity of the seafood, but I thought the sauce was on the salty side, a little too acidic, and the pasta was too al dente for my taste. I've ordered this dish at other Italian restaurants and the sauce is creamier and tastier. The bread was excellent; soft and lightly flavored with herbs.

    Food and cocktails were fabulous! A bit pricy BUT well worth it! The noise level was a little loud for my preference (our table was upfront near the door) but not so loud that we couldn’t have a decent conversation. Will definitely be back!

    We came celebrate New Year's eve. Everything was fantastic! The drinks were very excellent. We got a lemon drop martini, pomegranate martini, & a cosmo. They were beautifully made and tasted delicious. Our entrees were just as good. We visit multiple times a year and will continue to do so. We love Marcello's!

    I understand with inflation that prices have gone up however charging for blue cheese stuffed olives with martini ordered, and asking specifically if the martinis are made with the blue cheese olives without informing there's an additional cost is just absurd. The calamari appetizer was tough so we requested to return. The waitress asked for a replacement so we ordered class casino which was good. However reviw of the final bill, we were charged for both items.

    Dinner was tasty,service was quite attentive. Dining room was very noisy because of large parties with a few young children. I personally prefer a quieter atmosphere, some folks forget they’re out in public and don’t mind their children at restaurants

    My husbands meal came out 15 minutes before mine. Bread was dry, olive oil had no taste. Poor quality. I ordered bolognese sauce instead of marinara and they charged an extra $10. Disappointed.

    Came with my friends and family to celebrate birthday. Service was excellent, our waitress was attentive, she checked on us many times, together with bussers and even manager who stopped by couple of times to check on us. I can say they really care about their customers and are very professional. Food was super delicious. I got Mimoza Lobster ravioli and that’s the first thing that really impressed me in italian restaurants. Orange cream sauce is something!!! Can’t wait to come back again to Marcello’s!
